Brantley Gilbert [2] is turning heads with his self-penned debut single for Valory Music, “Country Must Be Country Wide,” but he’s also enjoying success as a songwriter. He co-wrote both “Dirt Road Anthem” and “My Kinda Party,” which became No. 1 songs for Jason Aldean. [3] Brantley will be receiving plump songwriter royalty checks for those songs, but he says the money success brings doesn’t matter to him.

“I don’t need much,” he said. “I’m single. I live in a one bedroom apartment and I’ve never been a big house guy and as far as money goes I don’t spend it. I just don’t. I may buy a pack of cigarettes here and there, if I’m stressed out I’ll buy a few beers. But if my clothes get as tired as they are right now, like these guys, I’ll go buy some more, but other than that I just don’t spend money.”

Brantley’s new album, Halfway to Heaven: Deluxe Edition hits stores on September 13.
